Very enjoyable hike. Uphill towards the end. Rewarding views especially after the rain. Gets the heart pumping.

VERY pretty waterfall, unfortunately there was a lot of damage to the trail (weather related) so all of the good viewing spots we closed for repair. We will try again on another trip.

The hike was a great way to break up our drive from Tennessee back to Illinois. To get all the way to the bottom of the main falls it was moderately difficult due to change in elevation plus the various jagged rocks and roots on the trail. However difficult it was, it was worth the cool breeze and mist from the falls at the bottom. Great exercise!!
